Challenge 21

Challenge 21

General description

The purpose of the game is collecting a score higher than the croupier’s adding the values of the cards dealt but not exceeding 21. Players bet against the casino. It is called Black Jack when a player reaches 21 points with an initial two-card hand. If the croupier gets Black Jack too, a tie is called and no one wins or loses.

The participants play one hand each against the croupier’s three hands, so they can place a maximum of three bets, but never less than two bets.

Required items


To play Challenge 21 eight 52-card decks are used, three of each color; it is also allowed to use decks of one color, as long as colors are alternated between tables. The back of the cards must have the same motif (design).
